GUESTS: Debbie Bridges
- Debbie Bridges RE revisions to Academic Program Review Guidelines: Debbie discussed and answered questions regarding the Academic Program Review Guidelines revisions. Discussion was held and a motion was made by Bill and seconded by Kenya to approve the revisions as presented. Motion carried unanimously.
- Draft Adjunct Policy: Kathy discussed the process for distributing adjunct contract letters and distributed the draft policy with the suggested modifications. Discussion was held and it was the consensus of the group to keep the process the same with the exception of quick turnover. The letters will be done as we receive the Personnel Action Change Forms (PACF). The changes to the draft adjunct policy were approved as modified.
Kathy also reported there are two follow-up reports which are due shortly to the CCPE, one for the Master of Arts in History and the other for Modern Languages.
- Finnie reminded everyone this is a bargaining year so the new Rank and Tenure Guidelines will not be effective until the new agreement is in place.
There being no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned. The next meeting of the Deans will be on Tuesday, September 9, 2008 at 9 a.m., Warner Conference Room
